Valentine Love You Card


Happy Wednesday!

Today I have a card to show you that I made for a couple of different challenges.

I decided to make a Love You card. I love making these types of cards! Not only for Valentine's Day, but I love being able to leave my hubby cards for him to find any time of the year.


For my card, I decided to use of some of the chalkboard paper that I seem to be hoarding lol! I ran it through a die from MCT to get the stitched edges and then used a border punch on a strip of red paper and attached it to my chalkboard layer. I wrapped some Totally Red Trendy Twine around a few times and tied a bow. I then attached that entire layer (offsetting it a little) to my card base with some foam adhesive. For my phrase, I cut out the "I Love You" from the Lyrical Letters Cricut Cartridge. I placed some of the little hearts that got punched out onto the card front and then added some Wink Of Stella Clear Glitter to all the red hearts and then added some glossy accents to the top to really make that shimmer pop. I love the way they turned out! They almost look like those little red hot heart candies. :) 

The challenges I am entering my card into are:
